    First an update.. I failed to match Kevin Fetter's great Iridium 33 video. I
    did tape what should have been 33 in a very large FOV, and saw no variation
    on a very dim sat. I will try again as passes and weather permit..
    
    But a question about EGP.. I assume there is no reason to get a positional
    measurement of EGP and I can therefore use a different setup with no time
    inserter in an effort to get a 'pretty video'?
    
    I am still looking at what else I can see tonight, including looking for
    another Iridium 33 pass..
